I have one left

You spoke those words many times that day,
back in early August when you visited your grandparents.
It was just protocol for the game,
but something about the way you said it stuck with me.

Now that will be my strongest memory of you,
as trivial as those four words may have been.
I wish you had created more memories,
but I am grateful to have this one at all.
